This attack thrives among web sites, needing no more sustenance than HTML tags and a smattering of JavaScript to thoroughly defeat a site’s security. The attack is as old as the browser, dating back to JavaScript’s ancestral title of LiveScript and when hacks were merely described as “malicious HTML” before becoming more defined.

From a single hacked request. This also means that it is stateless—the site doesn’t display the search result from other users nor does it keep the search results from your last visit. Instead of searching for European swallow you search for and watch as the JavaScript is reflected in the HTTP response. Each search query returns a new page with whatever attack payload or search term was used. The vulnerability is a one-to-one reflection. The browser that submitted the payload will be the browser that is affected by the payload.

From the browser’s point of view, all of these actions are business as normal. In October 2005 a user logged in to MySpace and checked out someone else’s profile. The browser, executing JavaScript code it encountered on the page, automatically updated the user’s own profile to declare someone named Samy their hero. ” Then another friend, who had neither heard of nor met Samy, visited MySpace and added the same declaration. This pattern continued with such explosive growth that 24 hours later Samy had over one million friends and MySpace was melting down from the traffic.
